Recent guest reviews

We came up this sept weekend weather turned out great found a lovely river at the lodges we had dinner in the Friday night at the bistro was great best gammon steak then booked the same for the Saturday night room in the family suite was needing up graded but still good Gary in the Bistro was every good with kids kids stayed a extra night as they didn't want to go home lovely time away

The hotel was nice and we enjoyed our stay however we did not feel that it was worthy of the name "Hilton". I absolutely cannot fault the staff as they were fabulous however the decor was very outdated and our bedding was torn. The Inverduie restaurant was quite peculiar. The breakfast was delicious however the evening meals were very disappointing. This baffled us seeing as it was the same kitchen? All in all a good deal but was expecting more due to the name of the Hotel.

Where to start? Food was terrible. The lentil starter was tasteless, and the olive bread was as hard as a brick, and had mould on it (photographed). The fish was undercooked, I hate raw fish, in fact the only thing I ate out of the entire meal was a small portion of mashed potato, everything else was returned to the kitchen. Room was small, in need of a refurb, light hanging off its bracket, repair patches on walls. TV picture poor. Bath 4' long, seriously the only way you can get in this bath is with your knees around your chin. Toilet seat won't stay up. Asked for a quiet room but banging of the cheap room doors all evening, thumping from above, ceiling like cardboard. Can hear the hairdryer next door clear as day. Asked for a room with a view, looked out the window onto water tanks with warning tape all around, no view at all. Kids running around all over the place, dogs barking inside the rooms, stairs dirty (staff members own comment). Had about 4 hours sleep in this place. The quality of the room and corridors was extremely poor. Asked to be moved to a different seat in the restaurant due to a cold draft from above our heads. Wife ate some of the food (I did not) and she was physically sick in the room afterwards. Enough said I think. If you want a peaceful break stay well clear!! On the plus side the bed was comfortable (we booked 2 x double beds) and the staff were very friendly and trying their best, no doubt for poor wages. Special mention for the foreign waitress who could not have tried harder :-)

Recently stayed at the Hilton Coylumbridge Hotel with my partner, friends, a 4 month old baby and a dog. Firstly, although the Hilton advise they are dog friendly, they are very restrictive as to where the dog is allowed. The dog is not allowed in the seating area immediately at reception but allowed in the bar area adjacent to it. However, after 8pm we're not allowed to have a 4 month old baby in the bar area and need to sit in the reception area. Where do we put the dog? Back in the room apparently. We went to get the dog out of the room to let her out to the toilet to find that the card mechanism wasn't working as the battery had died and the dog was stuck (Not to worry, apparently the door opens from the inside we're told, Not helpful for a dog!). The dog was going mental in the room as she could hear voices outside the door. The rooms themselves were very outdated, the rooms were very hot, no air conditioning, window only opens a fraction. The lights above the bed did not work so when we turned on the main lights, we still had to walk in the dark to turn on the spot lights. Bathroom could be doing with a good clean, tiles are cracked, shower lacks pressure and temperature seems to fluctuate depending on other rooms using the water. The only positive I can take away was that the restaurant was lovely. food was good. However, given that we'd paid £180 for dinner, bed & breakfast, I was disappointed to see that we still had to pay a surcharge on certain items. Overall, we won't be rushing back any time soon.

Got a hood deal on a short break in one our favourite Scottish hotels. Great for the kids plenty of facilities and things geared towards the young. Unfortunately due to it's popularity it suffers from it's success. During this stay the hotel was very busy and this lead to a lot of complaints particularly regarding the availability of the restaurant for the kids. The weather wasn't very good due the storm but the hotel could not be blamed for that. We still had great fun in the woods and did some cycling. Kids disco also did not have appropriate acts one time it was a acoustic guitar set which the kids had no idea what he was playing. Will I come back, definitely it has all the things I want for a short family holiday.

Enjoyed a relaxing, long weekend break at Coylumbridge with a young family and difficult to fault the hotel for service, food and facilities. The food in the hotel was good. Buffet breakfast is as good as you could ask for. Every conceivable taste is catered for, son enjoyed the waffle maker. Dinner service was good too. The trout I had in the Bistro was excellent. As other reviews point out there are some small issues ie no lift to levels, pool a little small and can get busy but again these didn't impact on our stay. The room was a family suite with bunkbeds in an individual room which allowed for a relaxing evening in the room. The foyer area was busy in the evening and again was good for people to mingle and chat with or without kids. The rooms were of a reasonable size, toilet suite was fresh and clean. We would stay at the Hilton if we are in the Avimore area again.

We stayed on the dinner b&b package and asked for a quiet room. The room was billed as having a lovely woodland view but looked out onto bins. It was extremely dated and the bathroom needed a serious deep clean and repair. It had loose floor tiles etc. When other guests had a shower the noise vibrated through our room and the bed was very uncomfortable. The hotel is clearly family friendly as it was mobbed with children running about, screaming everywhere. The restaurant had clearly been recently decorated and was the only modern/pleasant area of the hotel. The staff in the restaurant were very friendly and helpful, although we were frustrated to see that a few items on our 'package' menu carried a supplementary cost. Not a relaxing place to stay at all.

Dated. Dated. Dated. Really shouldn't be called a HIlton as it has none of the HIlton amenties and lacked in the very basics. No elevator, no central heat and air, windows that only cracked open. No pen and paper in the room. Rooms that smelled of mothballs. Lacked many of the usual Hilton toiletries such as bath soap (only had face soap). Probably the hardest bed in the Hilton chain (with over 2500 Hilton nights, I've slept in quite a few). After lugging our luggage up three flights of stairs, we understood why the bellman in the lobby was so insistent about helping with our luggage. We should have taken him up on his offer of help. The room was very hot but there was no thermostat because there was no central HVAC system. Only a cracked window and a space heater. Breakfast restaurant was extremely crowded. Only good thing was that it was free as we stayed on points.

Stayed for one night over the October holidays as a family of four. Check in was good friendly member of staff greeted us. (Although they did not inform us at the time that dinner would have to be book as it was the holidays so meant our earliest reservation was for half 7 at night, which resulted in a grumpy 3 & 5 year old.) The room was pleasant, two double beds although we found there was not a lot of room to store our cases and no room for kids to play with toys they had taken with them. We went to the pool which was good the children really enjoyed this but were greatly disappointed that the slide was closed. No explanation for this. Dinner was delicious we ate in the bistro, all the staff here were lovely and friendly! Gave us lots of advice choosing meals n sweets! Afterwards we sat and listened to the the live entertainment, kids loved this, so did we! Good nights sleep and breakfast buffet in the morning, kid enjoyed making their own waffles, there was a great selection. Overall good stay and would go back.

Our third visit in the last few years. Great hotel for families. Daughter enjoyed the swimming pool and fun house. Went to the family buffet for dinner which had a good selection. Breakfast was also good. Very friendly staff from check in, restaurant staff and bar staff. Only downside, we were asked to move out of the bar area at 8pm, understand no kids allowed in bar area after 8pm however lounge was very busy and we were lucky to get a seat or would've had to finish drinks in our room.
